The New Ice Age is here, and I‘m glad that I had new insulation added to the Think Tank over the summer. I told the interns to get the fireplace going this afternoon, so things should be warm and toasty for tonight’s weekly philosophical gathering.
Zombie Car put up a little fight when I went out to start it after work, but once the engine turned over, it purred like a very cold kitty the whole way home.
There’s snow in the forecast for tomorrow, so it’s definitely beginning to look (and feel) a lot like Christmas in these parts. Before you know it, Santa Claus will be coming to town, but after that, what do we have to get us through these frigid days and nights?
Pour yourself some eggnog, grab a handful of Christmas cookies, and join us in front of the fire to share your Deep Thoughts…
This week’s topic: When the weather outside is frightful, what’s your favorite way to deal with a Winter Wonderland?
At work today, my coworkers discussed their various plans for the weekend, and how they were going to deal with the frigid temperatures and another snowstorm.
Christmas is just over a week away, so even though Snow Miser has decided not to play nice, there is still so much that needs to be done to prepare for the holidays. Some people were ready to handle the weather head on this weekend, while others were going to play it by ear and factor in things like “Will the car start in this cold?” and “Is my street plowed so I can get into town to shop?”
For this Modern Philosopher, however, there is only one course of action. I stopped at the grocery store on the way home tonight, loaded up on supplies, and plan to spend the weekend snuggled up at The House on the Hill.
There are plenty of shows on my DVR, the Jets are on prime time tomorrow night, and there is always writing that needs to be done.
I’m not one for frolicking in the snow, and I do not believe in tempting fate by heading out in frigid, snowy weather just to be active.
Frostbite is definitely not on my agenda this weekend.
I have my comfort foods, plenty of heating oil, and a desire to lazily watch football and Christmas movies. I don’t dream of a White Christmas, but if we do have one this year, I’ll be enjoying it from the warmth of my living room.
What a beautiful time, I’m having tonight, Sitting out a Winter Wonderland…
What about you, Modern Philosophers?
